If you want mortal users to mount MSDOS floppies, tho', you may want to

this may not work, as expected.
i tried a few years ago (on freebsd v2.2.5-release and
v2.2.7-release) to use mtools to do some stuff with floopies
and it failed in a truely bizare manner .. sorry i cannot
remember, neither do i have a floopy (that i can mangle - from
memory) to test the how it failed mode.
maybe mtools has changed, maybe the underlaying mechanisms in
freebsd have changed, all i ca remember is that if you needed
to do stuff with floopies via mtools you need to be root to
be assured of a reliable result.
just another data point
